2 leeks, trimmed and cut into 1cm rings
2 Conference pears, cored and sliced
2 apples, sliced horizontally, pips and stalk removed

Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Arrange the leeks in a large roasting tin, then add the pears and apples. Pour in 150ml cider or water, stir through the sage and cover the tin tightly with foil. Roast for 1 hr.

Meanwhile, pat the pork dry with kitchen paper. Mix the garlic, fennel seeds and oil in a small bowl, season generously and rub all over the pork.

When the apple and leek have 10 mins left, heat a nonstick frying pan over a high heat and sear the pork for 1-2 mins until golden all over. Remove the foil from the roasting tin and add the pork. Pour over 100ml cider or water and roast, uncovered, for 20 mins or until the pork is cooked through. Re-cover with the foil and leave to rest for 5 mins before slicing and serving.

Tip: Save any roasting or resting juices to add to the cider gravy
